Title: Aspen Trees: Fall and Winter

Size: 9.5″h x 19″w x 1″d

Price:  $ 400

Description: White stoneware.  Hand built using soft slab, carved.  Surface decoration achieved using underglazes, wax resist, glaze washes and glazes.  Fired to cone 6.

Statement: These pieces were inspired by the Aspen trees growing at our cabin near Chama.  I tried to capture the beauty of the entire tree, from the unique trunk to the spectacular leaves, some shimmering yellow-gold, some pinkish-red.  Surprisingly, they are equally beautiful in the winter, blending in yet standing out in contrast to the snowy landscape.
